Winemaker Notes :

The 2018 Lucienne Smith Pinot Noir displays fragrant aromas of red currant, cherry, blueberry, and spicy toasty oak. Flavors of red cherry, black plum, and lingering impressions of spicy clove and cinnamon give this wine a backbone with an intriguing layered tannin finish.

Rich, opulent aromas of black-cherry cordial and caramel are thick but delicious on the nose of this bottling. Sandy tannins frame the creamy cherry and blackberry flavors, which are lifted by star anise and licorice accents and lead into an oaky finish.

Vivid red. Vibrant red and blue fruit, candied rose and baking spice qualities on the incisive nose, which picks up a hint of smokiness with air. Juicy and penetrating on the palate, offering gently sweet raspberry and boysenberry flavors and allspice and cola topnotes. Shows excellent clarity and spicy thrust on the clinging finish, which is framed by smooth, harmonious tannins.

Refined, with concentrated raspberry and dried cherry flavors backed by crunchy acidity. Rich minerality midpalate leads to a fresh and well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2024. 1,280 cases made.
